Part of the wildly successful HardWire series, the DigiTech TR-7 Tremolo/Rotary effects pedal features seven meticulously crafted, true-stereo tremolo, rotary, and vibrato effects. The TR-7's performance is enhanced with the high-voltage, constant-current rails that enable the TR-7 to be used in the hottest effects loops while keeping your tone consistent throughout the life of the battery.
The TR-7 Tremolo/Rotary pedal has a number of operational modes that give you access to a wide array of effects: Tremolo, Opto Tremolo, Bias Tremolo, Duo Tremolo, Rotary Speaker, UltraVibe, and Vibropan. Controls for LFO speed, depth, and for modifying various settings depending on the effect selected.
HardWire Pedals include the following stage accessories:
Stomplock™ knob guard locks your tone in place and prevent tampering or accidental knob adjustments onstage
Pedal Switch Glow Sticker helps you locate the pedal in adverse stage lighting
Custom-cut Hook and Loop pedal board Pad to attach and lock your pedals to your pedal board

I used this tremolo for a few months before I decided to sell it. The different tremolos sounded great and I really liked having the Leslie option also. The one thing that made me decide to sell this pedal is the lacking tap tempo function. It is very difficult to use in a live situation. Hold the switch down for 3 seconds then tap your tempo. If you want to reset the tempo you must hold it down again for 3 seconds, which can quickly become a pain. Also if you want the term to pulse with the quarter note and tap in quarters in pulses with 16th notes. So to get the desired quarter note pulse, you must tap in whole notes, which is also a pain in a live setting.
I only really needed this pedal for two things: 1) Rotary speaker simulation, which I use a lot, and 2) very deep, usually square-wave tremolo, which I use on a couple of tunes. I don't really use the amp-tremolo emulator settings at all, and only occasionally try the vibe, duo-trem and vibro-pan (although the latter two are especially fascinating, mind-warping effects that I'd like to find more occasion to use). However, the fact that this pedal does two things so amazingly well and has all this versatility aside from that makes it a very nice piece of work. One thing the product description doesn't tell you (and I don't know why it doesn't) is that the rotary effect features actual lag time, so that when you change the tempo (the tap tempo takes some getting used to, as it actually functions at double the speed of your taps), the vibration speeds up or slows down gradually, and this is very fun to play with. I think it sounds very much like a real Leslie, including the way it adds sustain to any guitar, and the Modify knob allows you to mix the wet & dry signals to your liking so that it fits whatever tone your other equipment adds up to. I especially like it with the signal chain thus: Guitar bridge pickup > unity gain buffer > compressor > octave divider > mild distortion > TR-7 rotary; this sounds EXACTLY like a pipe organ. As for the deep square-wave tremolo, what can I say? But on this setting, if you like that effect (as many fellow John Cipollina fans will), I recommend placing the overdrive AFTER the TR-7, or just using your amp's overdrive, as the tremolo does not do well with clipping pedals in front of it. All in all, one of my favorite pedals.
There are alot of tremolo pedals out there but this one comes with a rotary setting for an authentic leslie effect, which really won me over. As for the other settings, they all sound great to me and for the price you can't beat it! This pedal is definitely a keeper.
Very well made and very pleasant effect. The trems behave as expected. The other included effects don't really have a home on my board, so the stomp block is perfect. I really didn't want a digitech pedal, but after a bad experience with a boutique brand i am thoroughly impressed. There are better trems out there, but at this price point you can't beat it!
great pedal...totaly amazing on sound and variation in sounds for it live just realy boosts the performance...love it
